3 Places To Find Inspiration

3 Places To Find Inspiration | Only on Five Foot and Fabulous!

Hey, friends, and happy Friday! I hope everyone had an absolutely wonderful week. I’m going to start this blog post out with something a bit more personal. It’s important to me that I’m as transparent as possible with you guys because we’re all real people and we all have things we go through. The truth is, there’s a lot of things in my life that are changing, but I also feel very stagnant. All this week I was having difficulties relaxing and turning my mind off. I often found myself thinking about the same thing over and over again. This is part of why I wrote today’s post: these are some of the ways I am finding my way through my current struggles.

We all find ourselves in positions where we need inspiration every once in awhile. Sometimes a series of unfortunate events (not an actual reference, I swear!) happens or we’re in a creative rut, and we need a little push to help us get through it. If you’re having trouble finding inspiration, I hope this post helps lead you in the right direction.

Heart to heart conversations

Sometimes the best place to find inspiration is to have a deep conversation with someone else. Hearing someone else’s thoughts can kickstart your own thinking. Perhaps they show you a new viewpoint on an old issue or bring up a whole new idea altogether. Whatever the case, it will give you an opportunity to learn and grow.

A peaceful place

Okay, I’m not talking that cliche “looking at the stars in an open field” thing. I mean, unless you want to do that because honestly that would be really cool. I’m thinking more of a quiet nook where you can curl up and be by yourself for awhile. Or a cafe that doesn’t see a lot of business. A quiet spot like this can help your brain work better and without interruption.

A good piece of literature

Last, but certainly not least: reading. I can’t even begin to explain how important reading is. Reading helps our brains to process more information, it teaches us new things, and it introduces us to worlds we’ve never even imagined. Reading just 20 minutes a day is a great habit to start. Who knows? Maybe when you pick up a book, you’ll read something you’ve been needing to hear all along.

What do you do to find inspiration? Do you have an inspiration jar (or bottle)? Let me know in the comments!

  2. I find mine from people around me! v cheesy, but it’s so inspiring to see people my age doing things they love and getting their perspectives on things that vary so much from mine. Also instagram is always good in a pinch for fashion inspo haha x
